Mick Fanning Breaks Wrist Snowboarding

Surfing’s world champ Mick Fanning broke his wrist while snowboarding over the holidays in Japan. Fanning, who picked up snowboarding about 5 years ago, broke his wrist while boarding down his first run of the day. The culprit responsible was said to be an intermediate level run at the Niseko ski resort, on the island of Hokkaido.

Fanning’s injuury is said to be minor and should have no effect on his preparations to defend his first ever world-title in the upcoming ASP world tour. Fanning captured the title and brought surfing’s bragging rights back to Australia in November of last year in Santa Catarina, Brazil.
